This review is from: Logitech Wireless Combo MK345 with Full-Size Keyboard and Right-Handed Mouse
Pros: On the smaller side without being too small
Texture on the mouse wheel
No extra multimedia shortcut keys. The basics are covered on the FN shift of the function keys. Volume/Mute Play/Pause Track up-down.
Normal keys - Big Backspace & Enter, Full sided inverted T arrow keys, Fullsided Ins/Del Home/End PageUp/Down keys located where they are supposed to be.
Cons: Nitpicking but I like a little more weight in my mice. This one has a single AA so it's pretty light
Other Thoughts: Been waiting for logitech to come up with a new combo. I have been using the MK320/520/710 for what seems like ages. They all have their good and bad points. I wanted a better mouse than the stock one on the 320/520. The 710 was a good set but it was expensive and the keyboard was kind of big and I've had issues with the letters wearing off the keys This set is the Goldie Locks model. Inexpensive but doesn't feel or look cheap (time will tell on the durability).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Plantronics Voyager Legend UC B235 Earset
Pros: Buttons are easy to use. Voice command for Pairing. Pairing has worked flawlessly on phones and PC. Comes with multiple charging options. The charging base is a nice addition verses the typical usb cord and having the headset just laying around. Talk time says 7 hours when fully charged. I haven't tested it that long but I've used it for 3-4 hours straight and it still says 4 hours remaining. Unit is obviously small and unobtrusive so it's easy to multitask and listen to music or a podcast on the down-low during a meeting or such. Range seems very good though it varies depending on if I'm connected to my phone or tablet. I can go about 50 feet before it starts cutting out with my phone, it is still solid when using the PC. That's about as far as I can go without going outside so I don't know the max distance for the PC. It's got enough range to get you to the bathroom without bringing the device :)
Cons: On the top end of the price range but if you're someone who needs a device like this it's going to perform 1000% better than some $50 unit.
Other Thoughts: Use this on my Samsung Note 5 phone and Microsoft Surface 3. Calls are great. Using it to listen to podcasts and audio-books is pretty awesome compared to a wired set of ear buds or the cheap around the neck stereo Bluetooth unit I have be using.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ThinkPad Laptop T420 Intel Core i5 2520M (2.50 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 3000 14.0" Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit (Windows Activation Code can be found in the battery compartment)
-free upgrade to Win 10
-Speakers a lot bigger than current tiny models.
Cons: Not really cons since these things obviously aren't included if you read the specs but they are missed if you don't have them:
-No HDMI video out (does appear to have DP but I didn't have a cable to try it)
-Lower screen resolution (1366x768)
Other Thoughts: For the price this is a well performing laptop. I had to send the first one back because it had what first appeared to be just a cosmetic crack on the bottom, turns out the DVD drive had a huge dent in it and was inoperative. Return was painless and my second unit is very clean and free of any defects. Look yours over very carefully and a get the extended warranty.
Got the message to upgrade to windows 10 immediately on starting up window 7. Upgrade went fine. remember to run "Disk Cleanup" then advance (I think) so you can remove the "Previous Windows Installation" to get back the 20 gigs and remove the windows.old folder.
